A Little Bit Of Intervention Please

All I want to do is crochet. It's cold and dark and windy outside, but inside the house it's warm and cozy, the Christmas lights are on, and I have piles of yarn just waiting to be made into mittens.....

So, while I should be doing this....

I've been doing this....

Help!!!!  I've started to crochet, and I can't get up!!!

Someone might have to plan an intervention.


  1. I think you should be knitting mittens all day long!! And then give them to people like me and Daphne!! :)

  2. Oh! So lovely!!!! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous mittens and designs with us! You are so talented and SKILLED! Maybe a 2 hours of crochet per 1 hour of bookkeeping goal?! Or just scrap the bookkeeping and keep designing!!!
